An old friend had told us to visit this rotisserie, and we were not disappointed. In fact, we arrived at 4:15 and just beat the crowd, which quickly stacked up behind us. The restaurant has two lines, one for orders that need to be placed and one for orders which have been called in ahead of time. The latter line... More

Simply amazing. The lines are long, but it is totally worth it. Like everyone has mentioned, the portions are huge. We each ordered the 1/2 chicken meal and it was enough food for two meals. Our total cost was just over $20 for the two of us!! The chicken, fries and salad were all delicious. You can't go wrong with... More

As we were wandering the Portuguese district of Montréal, we asked a local where we could find authentic food. My wife is from the Acores and she (and I) know good regional food from there. He recommended Romados. It is a popular spot, filled to bursting at lunchtime. We ordered their rotisserie chicken with salad and potatoes, expecting a treat.... More

Understandably, the lineup at this restaurant runs about 40 people deep during dinnertime (and I can only imagine it is worse later in the evening when folks are heading home from the bars). You will be well-served by calling in your order before-hand, as there is a separate "red-carpet" line for those folks, allowing you to basically cut the line.... More

not really have place to seat, and not a fancy place. However, if you like Portuguese style chicken at very reasonable price, this is place to go

13$ for a whole BBQ chicken and butchered for you...I am not sure you can beat that. My mistake was not taking the spicy sauce. The mild sauce didn't add much flavour. The chicken was still very good, but it didn't have that something special to differentiate it from other good BBQ chicken places. We got a bottle of guarana... More

The line is long but the wait is worth it! The poutine is super good and a little spicy! The prices are very fair and the options of desserts and drinks are good. Sunday is very busy so i recommend to call beforehand (the line of reservation is shorter)!

A nice inexpensive treat for a weekend lunch. The chicken looked and tasted great, but the chicken pouting was the star. When you order a platter, you get the chicken, a small salad and an enormous helping of fries. Definitely a place worth stopping in if you are in the area. There are number of small round tables, but if... More

Lots of hype surrounding this restaurant here in Montreal. I went today with wonderful anticipation of mouth-watering charcoal-grilled chicken...alas, the chicken was kind of dry & there was no sauce. The fries were too chewy & salty (again no sauce), the salad was mixed with the hot food so call me crazy but warm, limpy salad is a major no-no.... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
